About Us

Amateur Athlete has been a staple of the Bethlehem area since 1982 when it opened its doors on the Plaza next to the Boyd movie theater. Established with a product mix of footwear, clothing, skateboards, and some snow-centric items, Amateur Athlete quickly gained popularity as action sports began to surge in popularity.

Before long, they outgrew their original location and moved to Westgate Mall on Schoenersville Road. As the store continued to expand its selection of skateboards, snow gear, and beach-related items, it eventually had to move again in order to keep up with demand. Finding a new shop next to Record City was just what they needed as this allowed them more space for their ever-growing stock and satisfied their customers’ needs for more variety.

In time, Amateur Athlete relocated once more - this time towards the front of Westgate Mall - as the need for larger premises became apparent once again. Throughout all these changes, however, one thing remained constant: the commitment of Amateur Athlete’s owners and staff to stay true to their core values and lifestyle ethos no matter what trends or styles were popular at any given moment.

This dedication has seen Amateur Athlete grow from strength to strength over the years despite any challenges they may face along the way; they remain determined that their customers should always have access to whatever gear they need with knowledge and service that can’t be beat!
